This Week’s Games
Thereâ€™s bound to be something out this week to tickle your fancy. Street Fighter IV has been getting excellent reviews and itâ€™s also surprisingly cheap online – Â£27.99 at HMV seems a sensible buy. 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand is also said to be jolly good fun (as 50 Cent himself probably wouldnâ€™t say) while RPG Disgaea 3 is about as good as turn-based titles get.
There are also couple of curios for Wii – a tardy conversion of Rogue Trooper (the blue chap from the 2000 AD comics) and Nerf N-Strike, which comes with a Nerf gun you can clip a Wii Remote into. Awesome. Konamiâ€™s Eledees get another outing, this time on DS, while on Xbox 360 thereâ€™s Race Pro and X-Blades – a Heavenly Sword lookalike from an unknown Russian developer.
And if none of those float your boat, then thereâ€™s bound to be something on the Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection. You can’t beat a bit of Streets of Rage 2.
Next week: Killzone 2, Halo Wars, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop and Silent Hill: Homecoming.
